Question about Panasonic BL-C131 Network Camera

1 Answer

I can't get this website to work. 192.168.0.253. It's supposed to be the website to configure my BL-131 Network Camera. I got the camera a couple of years ago and just now replaced my router. As such I need to reconfigure my camera and this website no longer works. Does anyone know the IP address to configure a Panasonic BL-131 Network Camera?

Replacing the router will not have changed any settings in the camera. The IP address 192.168.0.253 is the factory default for the camera, unless you assigned a new one when you set the camera up.

This is a wired/wireless camera, and if you're trying to connect wirelessly you probably have a router setup issue. Like any wireless device, the camera needs to provide the right key to connect. If you haven't set up your new router's wireless security yet, or set it up with a different key than the old one, the camera won't be able to connect. If the camera's not on your network, you won't reach it and you'll have the problem you described.

The simplest thing to do is to start fresh. Reset the camera to factory defaults with its rear-panel reset button. The button is recessed and you'll need a pen or other object to press it for a couple of seconds. Connect the camera to the router using a cable, and you'll be able to reach it again on 192.168.0.253. Set up the wireless network in your router (assign network name, security key, etc.). Then go through the camera wireless setup steps so it can connect to your network and you'll be back in business.

If you need a copy, you can download the manual and find other information here from Panasonic.

BL-C131 port forwarding.


So you've configured port forwarding on the router. Do you have any anti-virus applications installed or have your set an exclusion in Windows firewall?

When i switch to wireless mode, camera stays in;privacy mode


Unfortunately the electronic operating instructions are not available from the support website and have to be purchased from Panasonic.
I think it will be a case of re-setting the camera to factory settings and re-program the webcam again

Problem with software


Most O/S have a plug and play set up device for any unit attached to Pc. For instance your USB/Extension hard disk could just be plugged and play.
I think this network camera is easy to install and use. I have read about its specification earlier that configuration is automatic and therefore, when you plug it in, it will pop up a window for downloading any files.
Have a nice day. Enjoy

Panasonic bl-c20 wireless network camera


Try this - unplug the power from the camera (and the ethernet cable if it is using one). Locate the 'Factory Default Reset' button on the camera get a paperclip and straighten it out. Plug the power back into the camera and press the reset button with the paperclip until you see the indicator light flash and go out (about 10 seconds). Now attach the ethernet cable to the camera and into your router and insert the Panasonic camera utility disk into your computers CD Drive. Run the setup utility from the disk and after a few minutes it should find the camera and you can follow the instructions for a new set-up. If the camera has been on more than 20 minutes when you start the setup utility, unplug it for 10 minutes and try again. Oh, and turn off Windows firewall while you are doing this.
